Between celebrating my 31st birthday, visiting family in Ohio, working hard for Graffiti Radio, Monster Entertainment, Black Ink MMG, Delmarva Broadcasting and house hunting, it's been a ride for sure! But you know, as they say, "With hard work comes success!" I don't know who they is that says that, but they is right! They must be rich? They must have they stuff together! They must be FOCUSED!

Look, I know it's not all about me... or maybe it is, hell it's my blog! Eh, I just figured I did owe a brief explanation as to why I haven't posted in basically a month. Below you will find one of the main reasons.
